The Bounty Hunter Discovery 1100: The Perfect Beginners Detector!

Bounty Hunter Discovery 1100When you are just starting out metal detecting, it just doesn’t make any sense to go all out with a top-of-the-line device. Thankfully, Bounty Hunter has designed the perfect entry level detector.  The Bounty Hunter Discovery 1100 is one of the easiest to use metal detectors out there for amateur hobbyists. If you are hunting for gold, relics and coins, on the beach or even just in your backyard, this metal detector will be a great asset. The Discovery 1100 is the entry level detector in the Discovery Series brand of Bounty Hunter Detectors.

So Why is the Discovery 1100 So Popular?

The Bounty Hunter Discovery 1100 is so easy to use and setup.  Utilizing a powerful microprocessor, the Discovery 1100 is an all digital machine.  No more tweaking dials to fine tune your machine.  A simple push of a button will correctly set the sensitivity or discrimination precisely.

 One of the coolest features of the Bounty Hunter Discovery 1100 is its awesome identification system. This feature means your detector can not only tell you when there is a target beneath you, but it also is able to give you a good idea about what you’ve found depending on what tone the detector emits and the indication on the LCD screen.  Another useful feature of the Discovery 1100 is the discrimination mode, which allows the user to discriminate against unwanted targets such as rusted iron.  This feature allows you to ignore junk metal and only dig high quality targets.
